Z2 Comics is reuniting with Grammy-nominated rockers Skillet for Eden II: The Aftermath, with lead singer John Cooper back to write, along with artist Chris Hunt, who also drew the series’ first entry. That book, Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel, was published just last September, and set up the post-apocalyptic world and the people who were looking for paradise.

Eden II: The Aftermath is available for preorder now in deluxe or standard editions, and is slated for an October release. Z2 says more details about the deluxe will be coming soon, but promises that it’s specially formatted to sit perfectly next to the previous volume on the bookshelf of every discerning rock fan or comic book reader.

Cooper and Hunt will also be working in collaboration with Random Shock Studios on the project.

Below, check out cover art, as well as quotes from Cooper and Z2 publisher Josh Frankel.

Cooper says “I am so excited to go back into the world of Eden! Eden 2 gives us more of what we like from the first book: more action, more surprises, more suspense.”

“Working with the entire Skillet family was one of the most rewarding experiences of this past year; one of unprecedented success for our company” says Z2 publisher Josh Frankel. “The band, their fans, and the organization around all of it is unique and passionate. Their energy is infectious, inspiring, and comes through in everything they do. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with them again.”
